Chapel is beautiful with stained glass windows and architecture. Buildings around quad and campus are worth a look. Nice public events held in chapel (lessons and carols,etc).

The chapel, built in the early 20th century, is neo-Gothic, reminiscent of English medieval chapels. The... More

Want to catch the movie you didn't see when it first came out? How bout the movie that "never" came out in CT? Or a classic? Trinity - which also is a wonderful college - has a great little movie theater called Cinestudio. Go. Enjoy.

Beautiful campus, lovely people and the accommodations are wonderful but the campus surroundings can make one a bit uncomfortable if you are unaware.

The screen is big, the selction of movies is interesting, eclectic and not what you'll find in suburban cineplexes. If you love movies more than hype and franchises then Cinestudio is one of the best theatres in the state.

Surrounded yet by itself a green oasis in a town of gray. Harry Potter would be very comfortable in the Chappel or on the long walk

The great English architect William Burges desiged Trinity's Long Walk in the 1870s. It is North America's only Burges building and the finest example of collegiate gothic revival style.
